Haye Wants Vitali, Wladimir-Povetkin as Deadline Nears

By Ruslan Chikov

Only a few days before the IBF's deadline of May 17 to make a unification fight between champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBA champion David Haye of England. The IBF gave the fighters until May 17 to make a deal or else Klitschko has to fight mandatory Alexander Povetkin or face being stripped if he refuses.

Haye's co-promoter Chris Meyer of Sauerland Event spoke with Russian reporter Alexander Pavlovu of SportBox and said he didn't think the deal would get done by the deadline and Haye was more interested in fighting older brother Vitali Klitschko, the WBC champion, who defends against Albert Sosnowksi of Poland on May 29.

"I have this gut-feeling [a deal won't get done]. David just fought John Ruiz on April 3 and wants to take a rest and wants more time to devote to his family. He is also more interested in making a fight with the older Klitschko brothers," Meyer said.

"A fight with Vitali could lead to a further unification against the winner of Wladimir and Alexander Povetkin. I don't think Haye and Klitschko will agree by May 17, the deadline set by the IBF to end negotiations."

The likely scenario would be good result for Sauerland Event because they promote both Haye and Povetkin - and as a result they would satisfy both of their fighters by getting each of them a good payday with a Klitschko brother.

Haye is a coward, a [COLOR="Black"]p[/COLOR]ussy, a liar, a fraud and a disgrace to boxing.

[QUOTE=Freedom!;10126701]So when Wladimir was calling out Haye and trying to get the fight made, Haye said he preferred to fight Vitali. Now that Vitali is calling him out, Haye (through Booth) is saying he prefers to fight Wladimir. :lol1: :lame:[/QUOTE]…

Yeah, Haye wanted Vitali... to stay as far from him as possible.
